The Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholars Program is a selective five-year, pre-college scholarship open to high-performing 7th grade students with some financial need. It provides comprehensive academic and college advising, as well as financial support for high school. There are Cooke-sponsored summer programs, internships, music/art lessons, support for the purchase of hardware and software needs, and other learning enrichment opportunities that are specific to the student. This is an opportunity that many families are not aware of and we want to change that.
Northwestern’s Center for Talent Development (CTD) works collaboratively with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to educate families and educators about this opportunity and help families through the application process. Throughout the winter and spring, Tammie Stewart, CTD Outreach Manager for the Young Scholars program, is offering free online workshops for anyone interested in learning more about how to apply. The next information session is scheduled for January 9 at 6 p.m. (Central). The application opens February 9 and will close May 11, 2023.
More information is available online. If you have any questions or would like to arrange for an information session at your school, please contact Tammie Stewart at email@example.com.
